It is growing more and more apparent that it just makes no sense politically for Mike Pence to stay as Trump’s veep for his stolen second term. While I know Nikki Haley thinks if she just sucks up to House Trump enough she’ll get the job, I am reluctant to agree with her.
Given how deranged Mad King Trump is and how everything revolves around House Trump maintaining power, it would make so much more sense if Crown Princess Ivanka was Trump’s second term veep.
I have said repeatedly that Ivanka makes so much sense because she’s a moderate Jewish woman who’s a Trump. Trump would to “keep it in the family,” if you will. Since the entire point of House Trump is to “own the libs,” what better way to do it than to throw everything up in the air by naming Ivanka as veep?
I guess Ms. Haley could serve the same purpose — she HAS been sucking up to House Trump to a surreal level — but if there’s one thing House Trump has shown us is no matter how much you suck up to them, you’ll never be a Trump.
And what better way to square the circle of succession than to have Ivanka as veep, so should something happen to Trump himself, she could name Tom Cotton or Mike Pompeo as HER veep. Either one of those would-be strong men could rule behind the throne in her name. They would be in a position to serve eight years in that position and then rule in their own name another eight years. This is how autocrats think — just look at what Putin did for much of his reign before he changed the Russian Constitutions.
Anyway, it definitely seems as though Pence isn’t going anywhere. Trump can’t keep a secret, so we would have heard rumblings of his replacement by this point.
